3:00 pm
the story of sin city. in 98 ten on cnn closed captioning bronchi by meso >> mesothelial. it's all we do with local offices throughout the country or does help you get the compensation you deserve, 800 to eight to 44, 44 we're you are in the cnn newsroom. hi, everyone. i'm jessica dean in washington and tonight, ukraine's president zelenskyy is warning millions could die hi, if america does not approve more funding for the war torn country. it has been two years now since russia's full-scale invasion of ukraine as putin's forces takeover control we'll have more ukrainian strongholds. a $60,000,000,000 aid package that could help defend ukraine has been stalled in the house of representatives. today, zelenskyy hey, declaring he still has faith in ukraine's biggest ally, cnn's nick paton walsh, brings us the latest now
3:01 pm
from zach >> using the first >> day of the third >> year of this official number of lives lost by ukraine's military. since russia's full-scale >> invasion, 31,000 it's the number he gave that is slightly less perhaps than some of the estimates puts around by western analysts. but it is significantly less than the toll he gave for russia. he said had lost about five or six times as many troops as ukraine. now, he also held out it's rare to hear people talk about diplomacy. he held out the possibility of some sort of unilateral effort picking up pace through a potential summit in switzerland, moving forwards in the spring, essentially, this is ukrainian its allies laying out a vision for a peace settlement entirely on their terms, hinting maybe the
3:02 pm
russian officials might possibly be invited. this certainly isn't the beginning of peace negotiations, but it is interesting to hear here on a platform like this, discussing the possibility of some sort of peace and negotiation, often absent from rhetoric, but also too stark i think in his reference towards european powers saying how they're simply not ready to fight a war in the way that ukraine has had to make itself in the past two years or so. here's what he had to say though, when asked about the holdup in republican led congress for the $60 billion that ukraine so urgently needs we don't accept this finale to fight for our life. if ukraine or if it will be very difficult for else, if there'll be a big amount of victim depends on you, on our partners on the jacket, nausea on the western world. if will be strong enough with weapons, we won't lose
3:03 pm
this war. we will win this war. >> i have >> hope about us congress let me off balance and i'm sure what the positive that it will be a positive solution. otherwise, i don't understand which world we're living. now, zelenskyy really has a difficult job to do in all of the speech he's been making around this anniversary, he has to be clear that ukraine thinks it can continue to fight without western assistance at the $60,000,000,000 level it needs from the united states, but it also has to sound the alarm that they really are struggling without that assistance. and i think today we saw a president, probably i think without openly saying it, shocked that there at this particular stage desperately waiting for the west to step in, but trying to suggest that ukraine is able to move forward and thanking those who've lost loved ones in the fight that they've had, jessica >> all right. nick paton walsh for us in ukraine. thanks so much. and this morning, we
3:04 pm
heard from the white house national security adviser about what they want to see from house lawmakers when it comes so that's stalled aid for ukraine. cnn's priscilla alvarez is live at the white house. priscilla, what were they saying? >> well, the white house clearly keeping up the pressure on house republicans as this funding remains stalled, and national security adviser jake sullivan, going too far as to call house speaker mike johnson out by name? >> the reality is that putin gains every day that ukraine does not get the resources it needs, and ukraine suffers. and there's a strong bipartisan majority in the house standing ready to pass this bill if it comes to the floor. and that decision rests on the shoulders of one in person. and history is watching whether speaker johnson will put that bill on the floor if he does, it will pass, will get ukraine what it needs for ukraine to succeed if he doesn't, then we will not be able to give ukraine the tools required for it to stand up to russia. and putin will be
3:05 pm
the major beneficiary of that now, as you heard, their national security adviser solving clearly laying out the stakes here, if that's 60 billion in funding, isn't past, president biden >> repeatedly framing this is not only us support for ukraine, but also something that is imperative for us national security. you can expect the white house officials will continue this steady drumbeat and make the connection in-between battlefield losses in ukraine and congressional inaction jessica. >> all right. priscilla alvarez for us, live at the white house. our thanks to you and joining us now is democratic congresswoman susan wild of pennsylvania. she is a member of the house foreign affairs committee. congresswoman. thanks so much for making time tonight. we're glad to have you with us. i just want to ask you first off, it top. >> if you're >> worried that speaker johnson will not bring this up for a vote when there is evidenced that it would pass with overwhelming bipartisan support i'm. extremely worried about that. i literally just came from a large gathering at one of our ukrainian churches in my
3:06 pm
district. hundreds of people were there very, very concerned about this. and i told them i didn't want to offer them false optimism, but that many of us will be working hard to get this up for a vote. >> and there is talk congresswoman, if they won't bring it to the floor, if he will not bring it to the floor to use some of this kind of more arcane legislative options called a discharge discharge petition to try to get that onto the floor. do you think something like that could work? it's a very difficult thing to do. >> we've been exploring all of those options. and the problem is that a discharge petition because of the numbers would require a few of the republicans to join us in signing that discharge petition so that it would have to come up for a vote. and we have not yet gotten a commitment from any of them as far as i'm aware, that they would sign it so things change over a long weekend and hopefully when we return to washington, we will see something happening along those lines. >> were just talking about how
3:07 pm
ukraine is now marking its third year of war. if the us were to abandon ukraine at this point what kind of message is that? not only sending to ukraine, but more broadly to our allies and our adversaries around the world. >> well, it's funny. i should just address that with the church gathering that i was width, it sends a terrible message obviously to the people of ukraine, but to our allies and to the rest of the world. and by the way, also to our adversaries, it sends a message to putin that the us government can't get its act together to support a democracy that is fighting back as hard as it can against russian invasion. it sends a bad message to our allies who have counted on us and have helped us as well. and it's not a good place to be. we are showing weakness in an area that we have always excelled and been in first place
3:08 pm
>> i want to ask you also about the middle east us officials say negotiators in paris, which include the us, qatar, egypt, have a greeted this bait. the basics of this new deal, which would free israeli hostages in gaza in exchange for a pause in the fighting for a few weeks do you think what do you think of that? and then politically, we have a president who is getting pushed. a lot of pushback from within his own party to help wind this conflict down. do you think that will give him some maneuverability? >> well, let me just say first and foremost, the first priority has to be getting those hostages out. we keep saying time is running out. we've been saying that for weeks now, months now. but the time to save these hostages it is close to gone and so that's gotta be a first priority and anything that we can do that will help that happen, needs to be done. and the president, i think, deserves some credit for
3:09 pm
the fact that he really has not allowed the politics of the situation, domestic politics here guide his actions, which is, by the way something that we have to do in connection with ukraine as well. this should not be a political football. ukraine should not be a political football. we need to put the right thing to do over our partisan politics that are quite frankly really creating problems in this country in terms of getting the government to function properly. >> because aid for israel also tied up over there in the house as well. is that aid to ukraine? >> yeah. i also want to talk to you about this alabama supreme court ruling that says frozen embryos are children. we know as a result of that three clinics in alabama, they're eight clinics in the hole all state 5 million people, three of them have paused some ivf treatments and that has caused chaos, immediate chaos for some people who are trying to have babies. you have introduced a bill to the house that was back
3:10 pm
in january to protect the right to reproductive procedures like ivf what made you do that? and i would assume it was concerned that something like this could happen >> so right after the dobbs decision came down back in 2022, the first thing i thought of as everybody was talking about restricting a woman's right to have an abortion. i thought about ivf procedures because by definition and many people don't understand the science of it, it involves fertilization of an egg, which then is an embryo and placing it back in to a mother's uterus and my first thought was that if they they're going to try to control women's bodies in terms of what women can do if they need an abortion, there's certainly the next step is going to be that they are going to try to limit their opportunity to take make take advantage of long used, very
3:11 pm
safe fertility procedures or ivf is a big one and i came from this from a very personal point of view. i never had ivf, but i had extensive fertility issues. i would have had a different procedure, not worked for me. finally, i probably would have gone to ivf, but i know many, many women more than that, i can count on two hands who have used it, who are some of whom are in the process of trying to create a family using ivf. i know people who have happily have children now, thanks to the science of ivf and the fact that we now have courts and politicians trying to take people's ability away to have a family is just mind-boggling in this mostly from the party that prides itself on supposed family values. let me just point out i
3:12 pm
started working on this right after the dust decision back in 2022. i have been searching for a republican co-sponsor for this bill since that time. there has not been one republican in congress that has been willing to co this bill with me, which is why we finally introduced it without the republican co lead. and so now you hear these republican politicians rushing because they realized that politically speaking, it's a bad idea to be against ivf because so many people need it because it also allows people to start families where we're all of those republicans. when i wanted to make sure that we could protect at the federal level people's right to use in vitro fertilization >> all right, congresswoman susan wild, pennsylvania, we have to leave it there, but we really do appreciate your time this sunday afternoon. thanks so much for being with us. >> thank you. >> and coming up, we have some breaking news for you for you, a major development in the gop race for president. nikki

3:17 pm
it will hurt small businesses, making it harder for them to access it's credit, meet payroll, and run their operations phol woke budgets are already stretched by inflation and an uncertain economy. washington needs to know this capital regularly relation is another bill. that americans can't afford >> bob manu raju on capitol hill. >> and this, the sienna >> we have some breaking news into cnn, the influential network associated with billionaire charles koch will no longer throw its money behind a former south carolina governor, nikki the haley, the group americans for prosperity says it is, instead going to focus on key senate and house races while still supporting her. they will not be financially back in her as a super pac as they had been in the months passed, joining us to discuss all of this. michael larosa for press secretary to the first lady, jill biden and specialists listen to president biden. we're going to shaw republican strategist and kate and dawson, former chairman of the south carolina republican
3:18 pm
party. it is wonderful to have all of you here with us. this is breaking news that i know we're all kind of digesting together let's start with you, rina, what does it say to you that americans for prosperity is? saying, look, we still support nikki haley, but our financial resources are better focused on trying to do something about the house and senate. we think that's where we can actually make a difference. >> on its face. it seems like this money not being provided to the haley campaign anymore by the koch brothers network would be detrimental. but it's not and they know that too. so they're being strategic because they understand that if trump, who is barreling towards this nomination does indeed become that nominee, he has not yet the presumptive nominee doesn't have enough delegates yet. i must add, but they understand again, if he becomes the nominee, that he will have a disastrous impact on these down ballot races. so they want to mobilize that money and really activate it for really those races. and that is their prerogative. but again, with
3:19 pm
afp and i have been deeply involved with this network for years for almost two decades now it's an incredible network. there's young people that network. it's so grassroots. there's a lot of loyalty there. >> and these are >> nikki haley's type of republicans, her type of conservative, even i would go so far to say, i am not trouble because i know that grassroots support is still there and she will still have big corporate donors who we will still come to her and it will not back away as yet. so i think this is a much ado about, quite frankly, nothing as yet. >> and it was a big deal for the haley campaign. they had to go pitch that the trump campaign pitch to them. they really had to work to get that financial backing. so they were really excited about it. kaitlan, i'm curious what your responses there's what you're thinking about all of this. and then also to what your takeaways were from the results in south carolina where we saw the former president with that resounding victory. but we also saw nikki haley with 40% in her words, she said it's not essentially not nothing so what do you think about all of that
3:20 pm
>> let me unpack it a little bit. i did a lot of tv last night and after i got through, we were tired no, we didn't win, but we ran a good race and there are a lot of things that went on about that i can explain but as to the donors, one called me last night and he's worth about $4 billion. >> and he said tell me what you need. so we'll move to past the koch brothers because thank goodness, they're going to the house and senate because we're gonna get wiped out there. that has been the problem with a trump nominee there are several things you're going to happen and i'm not a never trumper. i'm just always for nikki and there's 27% identified as independents yesterday on the exit polls, we had that before. those independents are independent republicans who don't vote in our primaries because they, they, they, they just don't. there's a lot of reasons their abortion policies, one of them but there's still republicans those 27% of republicans are
3:21 pm
going to be a problem because you know, they got a chance to go to bobby kennedy not to go to donald we've got issues that are getting ready to come up while we're still in the race, we are still scrapping. we ran that campaign like we run our households. we saved money. money was budgeted it's a wonderful team of the bodies are planted in michigan today. so we're pretty encouraged what really happened to us was we have governor henry mcmaster, who has been in office for eight years, 60 senate approval rating. and everybody loves him and then we had speaker mural smith, you bought about 55 elected officials with them. usually endorsements in south carolina don't matter. desi but they did this time. those are pretty good net the other problem we had is we for sure thought we would over vote the 74000076502016, and we under voted there that's another problem we should have voted about 1 million people in south carolina. so we picked up by
3:22 pm
luggage, were heading to michigan, we're headed to super tuesday we've gotten the money. we we've gotten the candidate with the talent. >> and >> we're excited about it, but it's cautious. but again, there are some real issue he is with a republican party that is a tad bit dysfunctional at the moment. >> and i want to come back to you with another question just a second about your message to donors, but michael, i also want to give you a chance to jump in here on this news that we're digesting that after this south carolina primary, as we head towards super tuesday, you see afp pulling it it's money there. you see somebody like john thune, the senate minority whip, who is now backing the former president. what does this say to you >> well, it seems like donald trump is going to be the nominee, but i would say also four years ago when you and i were in south carolina, i think four years ago this week actually it came at a time when people there were a lot of backers of joe biden who were leaving to go to mike bloomberg
3:23 pm
who were writing writing him off. he had lost three big contests and a pretty dramatic fashion in south carolina. once he won that state, it put them on a pathway to super tuesday. nikki haley, her the probability probably isn't there, but she does have reason to stay in the race at least i think next week will be this week will be a test in michigan for her and then to super tuesday, but then there's really going to have to be a rationale for her to stay in that becomes more clear >> kate and i wish want to go back to you quickly when a dawn or picks up the phone tonight or tomorrow and says to you, look, i see this has happened with afp. what do i do? like what? what is your selling message? what does the nut graph there as we speak in journalism, that you pitch to that donor to say stay. and this is the reason why i tell him we're trying to save america. i mean, that's what we're doing. we got the numbers that show we beat joe biden handling. we add numbers in the house and the senate.
3:24 pm
you've got a great candidate. we got a lot of you wonderful young people working for us. and we, we've got a couple of hundred thousand donors, so it's not just the big donors, their people that have been very generous to us in some of that is currency down trump made when he said jessica, you know, i'm will take you off the maga lift and we're watching you. i cannot tell you what yes, that was we hit that donor list last night and money is pouring in so we're nikki's a scrapper. she's got a stainless steel spine >> certainly >> we were disappointed, but we still did 40% and a place that she hadn't been governor for eight years. we ran against all the elected officials, most of them friends are very popular, governor of very popular speaker. and we, we, we were just 100,000 people away from victory, but it is what it is we've moved on south carolina is a tough place as your as my friends on the pound though, it was a really pale election compared to what we used to
3:25 pm
bush mccain was a real election different with pretty tanked >> jessica, i would just say though looking at the total numbers eight years ago, trump, i think had 67, 67% of the south carolina republican primary was against him last night was 40%. but it really had marginal had no impact on the general election and the total number of votes from eight years ago in that competitive primary in south carolina last night, no competitive primary. the total vote in south carolina among republicans increased. so he doesn't lack any enthusiasm at least in south carolina yeah. >> all right. there i could talk to you guys for a long time about this, but unfortunately, we're out of time. michael larosa, rina shaw, and kate and dawson. thanks so much for breaking down that breaking news with us. we appreciate it. >> thank you, jessie. >> thank you. >> coming up to americans are believed to be dead in the caribbean after officials say their yacht appears to have been hijacked, also have new

3:40 pm
is live at the white house. priscilla, what are you learning? >> we'll just go this is a significant development that really speaks to the moment that we're in for days. the question here at the white house has been whether president biden was going to speak with or meet with house speaker mike johnson, who has been resistant to passing any additional aid for ukraine. and we now have that answer with the president expected to meet with the house speaker on tuesday along with senate majority leader chuck schumer, house minority leader hakeem jeffries, and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. so a meeting with the four congressional leaders. and of course, it comes as there there's this buildup of pressure on house republicans to pass this additional aid to ukraine that $60 in funding that the senate had already passed. but that remains stalled in the house, but it also comes at a point where the house is trying to avert a partial government shutdown. we were expecting a deal today hey, on this front, it did not come to fruition. so the question is whether they can avert a government shutdown

3:51 pm
these claims from this fbi informant to accuse president biden of being one of the most corrupt presidents of all time. sean hannity just last year in 2023, didn't nearly 100 segments on on his primetime show advancing this narrative. why don't we take a look at some of these segments >> there are now real and growing concerns that your president, the president of our country, is compromised. >> the fbi informant that said the bidens shook down ukraine for a 10 million bribe that was vetted and found not to be foreign disinformation. >> joe biden, a corrupt career politician, who is now very credibly accused of public corruption on a scale, this country has never seen these revelations have verified, proved joe biden's lied repeatedly to the american people. >> both on and on and on it went and it has still gone. and why is this important? this is important because most
3:52 pm
republicans get their news from places like fox news and so they're not consuming news from the new york times or cnn. they're turning to fox to get their information and they're being told repeatedly lee that there are these damning accusations against biden. and of course, as you noted in the intro here, they haven't retracted. it's not like dave said, that a told their audience because this fbi informant has now been charged with lying about these allegations, that there are retracting their claims and apologizing anything like that. what they've actually done and in some cases is pushed further into conspiracy. and so you've seen a fox news host, jesse watters, for instance, come out in the past week and say that anyone accusing biden of anything is arrested by what he described as a weaponized doj. of course, that's not what's happening here, but that's what fox news viewers and the republican party is being told. jessica. >> and i also want to ask you oliver about the conservative conference known as cpac. it took place in maryland this past week. in fact, one of the
3:53 pm
first times ever met you. we were both there covering it years ago. it has effectively become the trump show and i was there on friday. it it really had featured some particularly fringe figures this year. tell us more about that. >> that's right. >> look, i think i had been a seat back many, many years. it's really an avatar of the republican party. it's a good indication where the republican party stands. and right now, in 2024, you're seeing a lot of extremist's, a lot of conspiracy theorists at this event has annual events making a lot of alarming comments. so let's listen to one of them aware one of the speakers talked about the end of democracy i just wanted to say, look, welcome to the end of democracy >> we're >> here to overthrow a completely, we didn't get all the way there on january 6, but we will we will endeavor to get rid of it and replace it with this right here. we'll replace it with this higher amen
3:54 pm
that's right, because all glory, all glory is not to government. all glory to god >> that's from one of these far-right conspiracy theorist who's got an a platform at cpac this year. and again, this i think represents the radicalization inside the republican party. we know from polls that most of the republican party do no longer believes the election for instance, in 2020 was legitimate, that they hold on to a lot of these conspiracy theories. and you've seen cpac transition over the years to reflect this. and i think right now seeing some of these conspiracy theories being floated at cpac, seeing that for the fact that fox news doesn't even have an official presence there. it's basically too radical now for fox news to show up it really indicates where the gop stands, at least the base. and frankly, it's it's really disturbing. >> all right. oliver darcy for us with that reporting. thank you very much. we appreciate it. >> his wife had cancer and he had a baby with his girlfriend
